An early photo of the Huntington Police Department, shown in James Casto's "Huntington: An Illustrated History," on page 36. The caption reads: "The stern-looking members of the Huntington Police Department gathered for a formal portrait in 1890. The bearded gentleman (third from right in the front row) is Municipal Judge J. N. Potts."

On Sunday morning, Jan. 17, 1909, the first edition of The Herald-Dispatch appeared on the streets of Huntington. Fast-forward 101 years, and that's a lot of history.

We have discovered a treasure trove of old negatives and photos at The Herald-Dispatch. Some of the images, we know. Others, we have no idea.

In the coming months, we will scan the negatives and photos, which are crumbling and degrading as the years pass. We will create photo galleries with the images and add what caption information we know.

Browse through the gallery. If you can add caption information to any of the photos (or correct a caption we already have), e-mail online editor Andrea Copley-Smith at acopley@herald-dispatch.com or call 304-526-2764. Be sure to include the title of the gallery, details of the photo, your name and phone number.
